Purification tablets/iodine is best because you will need more time to boil your water. They are small, cheap, and light to carry; another better way is to get water filters. They are low to maintain and easy to use.

Tea house lodge, how it looks alike

What exactly is a teahouse on your Everest base camp short trek? What does a teahouse do? People generally check the itinerary while signing up for the Everest Base Camp short trek. Of course, they want to look at the accommodations. While on the Everest base camp hike, there is a short walk. We stay in teahouse lodges, a simple lodge with most facilities. We stayed in a teahouse during the tour run by a family and served food and drinks. Families usually own them and offer simple accommodations built to assist in tourism. In Nepal, drinking tea is a common practice, where the word “teahouse” originates.

One of the good things about our Everest base camp short trek is staying in a tea house. We chose a friendly teahouse accommodation. Our tea houses will be beautiful lodgings because they sit in the valley. They will have a room with a bunk bed and an essential space to lock up their items. The tea houses in the lower valleys, like Phakding and Namche Bazaar, have more facilities. They will all feature electricity to charge your gadgets. They offer hot showers and bathrooms that are next to your bedroom. There, the comfort level is excellent.

It will get more undeveloped as we ascend the valley above Tengboche and Dingboche. Showers won’t be available in your rooms. You must stay two nights in Pheriche. They will all have a common area at the end of the corridor where they will make a fire, have dinner, and gather as a group. Your basic lodging will be further down the hallway. Your room will have a toilet but no shower.

The accommodation is essential as we get higher on our Everest base camp short trek. The teahouses are rustic in the last two villages, Gorakhshep and Lobuchye. You have a bunk in your room and a place to lock your belongings, but the shower or the toilet is at the end of the hall. So, because we’re lower in the valley, you consider the teahouse; you get a room with an attached bathroom. They also have hot showers and a bedroom with a device charging station.

The final two settlements, where you arrive at a high altitude, have quite a basic lodging. You can use solar electricity and solar batteries to recharge people’s gadgets. We can locate some plugs behind the counter that are accessible for a little fee. Many tea shops also provide Wi-Fi for a small fee in Everest base camp short trek.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness can be the major problem you will encounter during this trek. Trekkers may experience altitude sickness more often, especially at high altitudes. So, significant altitude sickness needs rapid attention. Our trip directors and guides have a strong background in first aid. Moreover, they are well experienced as well as have comprehensive training. We implore you to alert your group leader and guide you when you see any indications or symptoms.

The trek guide will tell you ways to prevent altitude sickness. Taking your time is the easiest method to avoid altitude sickness when hiking. You must drink lots of water (at least 3–4 liters daily). The only treatment for severe cases of altitude sickness is to descend and rest at a low altitude.

Please be aware that, depending on your health, your group leader may decide to stop your journey. Please remember that some people are more prone to get sick at high altitudes than others.

You need to be aware of the signs and symptoms of AMS to recognize it. They are-


Upset stomach



Nausea and vomiting

Loss of appetite

Sensing instability

Difficulty sleeping

Breathing problems

elevated heart rate

You need to take prompt preventive action if you experience any of the symptoms, such as:

Decent at a lower altitude (if possible).

Don’t climb up the hill until 48 hours.

Rest until you feel better.

Have proper acclimatization.

Don’t work out or exercise.

Avoid smoking

Avoid alcohol

Having garlic soup or hot ginger tea can be helpful.

Take in a lot of water.

Take more oxygen if required.

Take medication to prevent illness.

If the symptoms worsen, take Diamox as directed by your doctor.

Please Note: You will be sent back to Kathmandu on a helicopter for deportation in an emergency case. If your health doesn’t improve further over the following 24 hours, this action will be taken. Thus, get insurance covering the expense of reusing your helicopters.

Average Group Size

So, what size groups would you join if you went on the Everest base camp short trek? We keep our groups small, except for the short Everest base camp trek. Unless it’s a large private group on your own. As you know, our trekking groups consist of six to eight people. From our perspective, this keeps things more personal.

Some big groups have been on the Everest base camp short trek, but they only have one guide. But, keeping a smaller group is more beneficial. And you get to know your guides better since they are wonderful people. More personal interactions occur in smaller groups. And what we discover is that reaching the Everest base camp requires teamwork.

So, it’s better to have a team to assist you in getting back up on your bad days. When feeling a little off or getting down while trekking, the guide is best to lean on. The closer your team is, the more likely you will reach the Everest base camp short trek.

Yet, since it is your journey, you can select the people you go with. You may trek with your friends, coworkers, or family and have a great time.

Travel Insurance

It’s always necessary for us to have evacuation procedures. So choose guides with years of expertise in bringing people
to the Everest base camp short trek trail.
The risk of getting injured on the Everest base camp short trek might be. Injuries like a twisted ankle, a high altitude issue, and leg pain are likely to happen. So, you need to adjust to the altitude better.
We want to ensure our guest is comfortable and safe on the journey. They must be taken to a lower altitude if they become ill or cannot continue the trip. Or, they will be sent back to Kathmandu if their situation worsens. Moreover, we take every precaution and go forward with a very high success rate.,

Thus, before beginning the walk, we recommend you get trustworthy travel insurance. An insurance coverage called travel insurance can support you if you are evacuated.

Your travel insurance will cover the expenses associated with the accident that occurred. It will also arrange for a helicopter rescue if needed.

Short trekking to Everest base camp

Everest base camp short trek of seven days is also a short trek to Everest region. No Doubt this is one of the most famous treks in Nepal. As Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world, most people wish to trek to Everest base camp for a short trek. Usually, the Everest base camp trek takes 15 – 18 days to complete.

You can trek to Everest base camp within seven days. It is suitable for those who have a busy schedule and want to complete conquering the trek. This trek is not that expensive. This trek comprised of alpine forest, Khumbu region, and snow-capped mountains. As in the itinerary, trekking is also tricky and complicated because there is no rest day. You will have to hike for 7 – 8 hours a day.

You must be fit and mentally prepared for this Everest base camp short trek. It does not need any special training. Having some experience with short tours and hikes might be helpful. Everest base camp short trek includes the peaks whose height is more than eight thousand. Mt Lhotse (8,516m /27,940ft), Makalu (8,485m /27,838 ft.) & the giant Cho-Oyu (8,201m /26,906ft) are some of them. They walk through the legendary trail from where conquerors walked to climb Everest. You will also be trekking to the exciting village, Namche Bazar.

Being a veggie-lover is suitable for an Everest base camp short trek 7 days.

There is a no-killing strategy in Sagarmatha National Park. So, all meat is conveyed by doormen from underneath Lukla. Be alert when you have it, as it is getting old with succulent yak steak or a ‘buff burger.’ It’s better to have the healthiest alternative. The most secure dish is vegetable or Dal Bhat (lentil soup with rice). It’s made crisp daily and is an extraordinary wellspring of protein and vitality.

Talking about the places to Trek in Nepal.
The first thing that pops up in everybody’s mind is the Everest Base Camp Short Trek 7 days. EBC Short is the most popular and chosen destination for many tourists. Reaching the base camp and the nearer view of the highest peak in the world, “Mt. Everest,” can be a fantastic experience.

Accommodation during the Everest base camp short trek

Food and accommodation are essential parts of the trek. The adventure of Everest base camp short hike in the Himalayas is complete with good meals. A tremendous trekking trip must include the correct diet and cozy accommodations. Every backpacker should become familiar with the meals and accommodation. Before beginning a journey, one should ensure accommodation and a healthy diet plan.

Your food intake will determine how much energy you have to spend when trekking. Homey meals and cozy lodging are available at the tea houses along the trail. The menu hasn’t much variation, but the cuisine is excellent. You will sleep in the basic locally-owned tea house on the journey to Everest base camp. Teahouses are also called guest houses.

The guest house has all sorts of facilities. Some include a dining room for food serving, a proper bed, a mattress, pillow, bed shit, and wifi. The lower part of the trek places has even hot shower facilities. The Lukla, Phakding, and Namche guest house offers basic luxury options. In contrast, Diboche and Dingboche Pheriche are essential to Standard. In Lobuche and Gorakshep, there are basic lodges.


Yaks and porters generally carry the food items to the settlement along the path. It is because the beautiful trek’s track travels through a desolate landscape. The hikers will receive three meals daily on our Everest base camp short trek. Each guest chooses their meal at every restaurant we visit, whether we’re in Kathmandu or on our journey. Before and after our trip, we have breakfast buffets at the hotel or the regular tea houses. They provide a vast selection of traditional Indian food and Western cuisine. Some are eggs, bacon, toast, bread, fruit, yogurt, pizza, etc.

On the days of your EBC short trek, there is a large continental and local cuisine selection. Visitors can choose anything they like from the menu as we trek and place our orders at the tea houses. You can enjoy the breakfast on your way. Various curries, dal bhat, Tibetan bread, and fried potatoes are all available. Besides, other options exist, such as pancakes, muesli, cereals like oat cornflakes, etc.

Family-style meals are possible throughout lunchtime. You should take any dietary limitations you have into account while planning. There might be ten or twelve people entering a tea house. They order something different from the menu. This might make it difficult for their small kitchen to take a very long time to prepare. We send one of the sherpa men ahead to speed ahead and get to the teahouse before the rest. They’ll place the order. After, we may fulfill it with fried noodles, egg-fried rice, momos, and chips like fries and veggies. It will help you enter and exit tea houses without waiting a few hours on the Everest base camp trek.

Besides, you may have dal bhat, a traditional Nepali dish. Traditional cuisine includes rice, lentils, spinach, veggies in curry, and pickles. Additionally, they provide pizza, burgers, noodles, and spring rolls along the routes. Garlic soup is an excellent food to avoid altitude sickness at higher altitudes in our trek. Enjoy the local food Dal Bhat on your Everest base camp short tour.

We usually set out some snacks when we arrive at the tea house in the afternoon. Snacks such as popcorn, prawns, and hot beverages. So guests may have snacks before dinner. The servers will take everybody’s dinner orders. But you can place extra charges for various foods. Furthermore, dinner is served in the dining area around the large stove.

Visitors often don’t eat meat or chicken in those upper tea houses. There are fewer refrigerator options in the upper valley above the Namche market. They are concerned about the safety of the meat. They provide various foods, including tiny pizzas, fried eggs, and veggie fried rice. Among them, Momos are famous dumplings filled with either veggies or potatoes.

You’ll often have dal bhat, a typical local cuisine from Nepal. In dal bhat, rice and potatoes are added to a vegetable-and-lentil soup. There are a few fewer options for vegetables. Moreover, you can enjoy hot beverages, including tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and lemonade. You’ll always consume a lot of carbohydrates. Carbs are beneficial for altitude, especially in high-altitude villages. Carbohydrates are found more in potatoes, rice, pasta, and other similar foods. It helps you to keep fuller the whole day.

You can also bring some snacks and chocolate from home. These products will be good for snacking in the afternoon and on the Everest base camp short trek itself. Many times, people will also bring small candy bars and other products. Trail snacks may be some chewy things, some other bars, or cliff-type stuff. The menus don’t change all that much as we ascend the valley. Thus, having other tasty snacks can help you balance out your munching for nutrition. It also allows you to provide energy over your longer trekking days.

After your Everest base camp short trek, we plan a special celebration meal at the guests’ request. You can throw a large barbecue or anything else to honor our adventure. This will be our trek to the Everest base camp; a short trek will be complete with joy and happiness.

We had finished our Everest base camp short trek organized by Above The Himalayas. I must say everything was perfect from the start to the end. Our guide always made sure of the safety and enjoyment of our trek.

The views from Kala Patthar were perfect. Instead of going early morning, our guide took us there for the sunset. It was not that cold in the evening compared to early morning. The itinerary was well planned with enough acclimatization. Thank you Above The Himalaya Trekking for an incredible trekking adventure.

Everest base camp trekking was a lifetime experience for us. We had an 8-person group for this trek, and all were successful in the base camp and visiting Kala Patthar. Our whole group had never a problem on the trek and enjoyed the beauty and surroundings en route.

The mountain views of Everest and other peaks were stunning. We felt safe and lucky to choose Above the Himalayas for this trekking. They did an amazing guide for all the arrangements. We recommend this company.

I did a solo Everest base camp trek. I had a fantastic time with my guide, Bishnu, who always cared for my lodging and meals. He was experienced, had done this trek many times, and was always ready to help.

The guest house chose by him was nice and the best thing he provided was a private room for me. I organized this trip with Puru, who read all my emails and suggested what to take and how to travel before the trek.

They organized everything for me from Arrival to Departure. They met me at the airport with flowers which were so welcoming and special for me. This is very safe and good company for single female travelers.

We went for an Everest base camp short trek in December, right at the end of the season. We had booked our trip through Above The Himalayas.

Since this was our first serious trek, we were pretty apprehensive. We could not have had a better experience as everything was almost perfect. Mr. Puru is accommodating with the flight and necessary bookings. He ensured we were comfortable in our hotels and even offered to pick the tabs for all meals that extra day.

Although we were a small group of 8 people, he still sent two guides with us -Ramesh and Gokarna (Goki, as he was called ). Couldn’t have asked for better ones. By the end of two weeks, we had become good friends with them.

Ramesh was a very responsible and sensible person who was very well aware of his duties as a guide. Never had a dull moment with Goki around, he being the perennial entertainer. The stay, food, hospitality, and personal touch exceeded our expectations.

We never felt isolated and helpless in that inhospitable terrain. We would definitely come back to Nepal for a trek again and book through the same company. Without hesitation, he asks for Ramesh and Gokarna as guides. The Everest base camp trek has been the most fantastic experience of our lives.

We had a fantastic journey to the Everest base camp short trek. Thank you, Above The Himalaya and the entire team. The owner Puru was helpful in responding to our emails and queries for the trek and prepared us for the trek.

Our trekking guide was amiable and helpful in every way. We had a very kind and strong porter. Both of them were very patient, kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. They were always there for us for any services. We will return to Nepal for the Annapurna base camp trek and contact these guys. Highly recommended!

Excellent trek with an excellent tour company

My husband and I, both retired, had trekked Everest base camp short trek. We went there through the Above The Himalayan tour agency. Puru is very experienced and well-connected. They were able to manage timely alternative flight arrangements.

It’s prerogative to have a quick response time to work unexpected turns of events. Puru definitely has it. He also checked on us throughout our whole stay, including pre and post-trek tours. He also gave us advisories and helped with our alternative lodgings.

It is an efficient 5-star company with excellent service, and, a kind heart. We definitely recommend this company to anyone. we will look Puru up again when we are in Kathmandu again. Thanks, Puru and team.

I did the Everest Base Camp short trek and took a helicopter down to Lukla from Gorakshep. Everything worked out well, and I enjoyed the trip.
The best thing was we had an excellent guide who got lots of knowledge of local culture on the trek. Make sure you choose a good company for this trip, and Above the Himalaya is the one choice in Nepal.

Extraordinary Service and Experience

I just completed my trek to Everest Basecamp trek, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I booked the trip through Above the Himalayas, and the service was impeccable.

The owner, Puru, truly went above and beyond to assist you every step of the way and would constantly contact you as you go along with your journey to the top of the world. The guide they provided me (Shiva) was very knowledgeable and accommodating. They will adjust to your changes to ensure a comfortable trek toward your destination.

Short Everest base camp trek 7 days best adventure ever
Star Star Star Star Star

Thank you, Puru for arranging the Everest base camp trek for 7 days for us. We had a very short time, and Puru arranged us best trekking for us. We took the Helicopter flight back from Kala Pathar to Lukla it was a great flight and saved us time.

It was a great decision rather than coming down in the same way and I had some knee problems. The guide, Basu, is very polite and willing to help in every aspect. We had a very strong porter also.

Thank you again Above the Himalaya and team

Brilliant short trek to Everest base camp - Highly Recommended
Star Star Star Star Star

We returned after our Everest base camp short trek from Above the Himalaya Trekking. The trek itself was amazing. It offers a stunning part of the world with jaw-dropping views. We observed “big mountain” feels throughout. And the Nepali people were warm and welcoming.

Above the Himalaya Trekking’s organization of the trek was exemplary. Everything was exactly as promised, and the whole thing worked out. It leaves us to focus on making the most of our time in the Himalaya. Puru, the owner of the company, was helpful and responsive. He was very welcoming both before we arrived in Nepal and while there. Highly Recommended
